Figure 1: (a) Smear shows cells lacking distinct cell borders and elongated nuclei swarming within bundles of fine filaments (MGG stain,×400), suggestive of schwannoma. (b) Smear shows whorls composed of arachnoidal cap cells (MGG stain, ×400), seen in meningioma. (c) Smear shows branching blood vessels and perivascular palisading of densely packed tumor cells (MGG stain, ×400), suggestive of ependymoma. (d) Smear shows monomorphic, oval to spindle cells arranged around vascular cores and myxoid background (Papanicolaou stain , ×100), suggestive of myxopapillary ependymoma
